A tower rising up to the infinite
Cathedral of El Burgo de Osma
Is the most important monument in the province of Soria. Every style from Romanesque to 18th century Baroque has left its mark on this building, from which an imposing 72 metre Baroque tower stands out replacing the former Romanesque one and rising over the old Osma land. A great variety of Renaissance retables and chapels full of little details offer the visitor one of the best treasures of the former Uxama.
The portal sculptures and the symbols spread on every corner make of this enormous church a genuine jewel that synthesizes several styles and cultures. The original Romanesque temple, started by San Pedro de Osma, was substituted by the present Gothic building, which was started in 1232 with the support of the Bishop Juan Domínguez, King Fernando's chancellor. Only two round arches stand of the original church.
